Those outside the state of Commiefornia should NOT invest their hard earned money in a Democrap run, gun hating state. Spend your money in a state that supports the Second Amendment and gun owners. Screw Commiefornia!

Every year I have several mourning doves that makes nests outside of my front door and I would never consider shooting them. Their coowing sound is very refreshing.
